So far winter has been kind to us but our current weather patterns mean that by the time you read this we could be knee deep in snow with temperatures well below freezing.

However, that shouldn't stop us looking forward to Spring and Summer and making plans for outings, holidays and special events. Now is a great time to look at your wardrobe to see what gaps you will need to fill as new pieces are arriving daily in the shop from our regular designers. Excitingly we also have two new collections for you this year: Gerry Weber and Habella.

More of those later and on our newly updated website but in the meantime there is one last opportunity for you to discover a real bargain in our final reductions on sale stock. We are now offering 70% off marked prices but hurry because the sale won't last much longer.

 

 

Jo gets a holiday!

 

 

We had great fun at our 'Pack a Suitcase day' when Jo was given a (pretend) holiday and the wardrobe to go with it, designed to pack into one small / medium case with a weight limit of 21kg. That included shoes, sponge bag and all the necessaries!

Could it be done?

Jo was a superstar as she powered her way through ten wardrobe changes which included four pairs of trousers and two skirts, teamed with tops, jackets, cardis and gilets. The combinations of wonderful separates provided enough scope for a two week holiday with day, beach and evening wear included.

Colours were bright and cheerful, ranging from candy pink to ocean blue, denim to brilliant white and classic black. Blouses, T-shirts and bubble tops came in a variety of colours, plain and print, which coordinated with all the base pieces, meaning you would never have to wear the same combination twice.

Many of our favourite designers were represented, introducing members of our audience to labels they may not have considered before. We also showed off pieces from the new Gerry Weber collections which proved very popular.

When the contents of the packed case were revealed there were 22 tops, three pairs of trousers, two skirts, three jackets and five pairs of shoes with the remainder of the clothing worn for travelling. That's the beauty of easy care fabrics which pack into a very small space yet require no ironing when you arrive at the destination.

Our pictures show a small selection of the clothes on show that day - and the packed suitcase - watched by members of our audience enjoying a glass of fizz.

Exciting news

 

 

We always get excited when we introduce a new designer to our customers but this month we were super excited! Gerry Weber is a well known name in the fashion business but this is the first time the designer's clothes have been available in Harrogate - and yes, you can find them in Victoria Lane Fashions.

We've put together a capsule collection of separates featuring the Edition, Casual and Collection ranges, which we are positive will be in great demand by our customers. In fact, they are already selling well so pop into the shop soon if you want to find a piece in your size.

Welcome to Habella

 

 

A second new name in the shop this Spring is Habella providing feminine fashion for women of all ages and sizes. Perfect for chic women who want to be well-dressed no matter what the occasion, the collections are designed in exclusive materials with a beautiful finish and a perfect fit, combined with feminine styles to accentuate the beauty of the female figure.

 

 

We are stocking clothing from the main collection and the Lifestyle look. Habella's main collection is designed with the mature woman in mind, one who is concerned with her look and always wants to be well-dressed. Habella Lifestyle has a younger and more sporty look, perfect for the feminine trend setter who wants to dress fashionably for every occasion.

On our travels...

 

 

...but it was no holiday.

Last week we went over to Germany to look at the Autumn / Winter 2019 collections and choose which items we will bring in to our shop.Düsseldorf is the centre of the German fashion industry and during the shows it is packed with buyers from around the world.

We really enjoy getting in among the designers and talking to the fashion houses about their upcoming collections. The new styles and colours inspire us as we start to put together separates collections in our heads, taking account of the likes and needs of our customers.

There was so much to see that we haven't had time to digest it all yet, let alone put our thoughts down on paper for you. So, look out for our February blog and newsletter which will contain ideas of the latest styling, colours and coordinates and when you are likely to be seeing it.

 

 

What's happening in February...

 

 

Do you have a problem finding the correct trouser fit or style and despair of ever getting a pair that make you look fabulous? Then join us for our February event when we will be showing you the differences between the various styles and fittings.

It isn't a case of one style of trouser fits all. So much depends on size, shape, cut and length of leg that it's more a case of finding one designer's trousers that work for you and sticking to them.

To help you work out which is the best for you, after the show we will spend time helping you to find your perfect pair of trousers.

 

 

... and in March

 

 

Our fabulous fashion shows return with the very best of the new Spring and Summer collections from your favourite designers. Our wonderful models will be with us too, giving you the chance to see the true beauty of the clothes when worn and which items are great for mix and match.
